  • Tums or try like a mint gum. I didn't think the gum would help but it did. Also try not to eat too late at night.

  • Heartburn huh? happens alot...I drank alot of milk and that helped me but that was 5 years ago...might want to ask the doc to make sure there is probably something else you can take that would work better. good luck

  • dont eat too late. and if you have heartburn around bed time try sleeping sitting up.. well maybe not straight up but propped up. it helped me.. and i hope it helps you.

  • Celery! Surprising, but when I ran out of tums at midnight one time the celery saved the day!

  • You can buy cinnamon tablets..it also helps with circulation, diabetes, swollen feet, high blood pressure. Go to www.earthclinic.com all natural remedies. I love this site.
